Packing List for Ski Week

Dear Boardies,

I am taking my kids snowboarding for a week in Seefeld, Austria.

The question is - how many of each item do I pack?

ie - ski gloves, ski socks, etc.

Basically, they will wear two complete outfits per day - snowboarding clothing, then regular clothing for the evening.

Plus, the two of them are hot blooded and they sweat like pigs when they snowboard. And the little guy cannot eat anything without spilling it on himself.

I don't want to spend my evenings washing their clothes...On the other hand, the thought of them wearing ski clothes for more than two days..well it is something I don't want to think about!

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi 43go,

I think the answer is to use some kind of long underwear -- the kids sweat into those, which are easy to wash and dry overnight. If you bring three pairs, you will have to wash them out every other night.

Then, the outer sweater should stay relatively sweat- and odor- free; you may have to wash out one or two during a week. The sweaters will probably be covered by a ski jacket for most of the day and few folks will see them, so there's no need to have a new one every day.

The dinner clothes should be pretty simple as they're probably only going to be worn for four hours or so a day; I don't think you'll need to worry about washing them often.

Goog luck!

Per person:
1 coat for going out in the evening
1-2 ski jackets
1-2 ski pants
2 ski pullovers
3 outfits of thermal ski underwear (long armed tops and long johns)
3 thermal socks
1-2 ski gloves
1 pair of thermal undergloves (highly recommended for people with cold fingers!)
1 scarf
1 face mask if it gets windy
1 ski helmut (highly recommended!!)
Watches and a meeting point
1 warm cap
2-3 sets of clothes for the evening
1 pair of boots for the evening
1 pair of shoes for the evening
1 pair of house shoes or tennis shoes to walk around the hotel facilities

Perhaps you'll want to buy some waterproof spray when in you're in Austria.

Good luck packing! Remember, you can always buy something at the local ski shop or even in the local department store (usually much cheaper.)

P.S. I launder our ski jackets, pants and gloves once a year. Too much washing ruins the fabric.

Could you perhaps encourage them to do their own washing?
